5:01 pm
signing. >> do you think it's going to work. >> of course i do. >> and get everyone on my side, i know how to get the evangelical vote, we'll put a picture of me next to a picture of moses holding the ten commandsments and huckabee, too, and add a 11 he commandments, thou shall tax the rich. and what about the women vote,. >> we make sure i made it possible for women to vote and show them a picture of me protesting with those women back in the day and the picture of me next to neil armstrong on the moon. use it to go et back the people upset at me for shutting down the moon program. who do you think taught them how to moonwalk? [laughter] >> that's right. i taught him everything he knows. those moves. >> see that?
5:02 pm
some robot and do that, too, look at this. >> tonight on huckabee, she made a willful unprofessional and illegal decision. >> did the prosecutor in the trevon martin murder case withhold key evidence to uphold her case. alan dershowitz makes his argument. >> there will be hair, blood, eyeballs all over the floor. >> are we ready to for tax-geddon. >> how to prevent economic disaster before it expires in january. first, a federal inmate in west virginia, now another no name closing in on the president in the democratic primary in arkansas. the man who caused embarrassment to the president. tonight. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [applaus [applause]. >> thank you, thank you very
5:03 pm
much. and welcome huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city, where we have a great audience here in our studio. this week, the official white house website decided some of the great moments in presidential history weren't any better than the achievements of barack obama. so white house pr doctored up the evidence on previous presidents to extol the magnificent accomplishments of president obama. some examples were to note that president roosevelt may have signed social security into law, but president obama is protecting it from the republicans who obviously want to keep the elderly sick and impof reserved. that lyndon johnson may have signed the medicare program into existence, but it's obama care that pushes it to a new level. by pushing obama care on us, even though we don't want it and the supreme courts likely to declare it unconstitutional. i thought they might include the john f. kennedy set the ambitious goal to put a man on
5:04 pm
the moon within a decade. but barack obama led us to a new space program, we pay the russians to hitchhike to space. they'll add that later. i hope there's room on mt. rushmore for another face, i'm convinced the fifth face on mt. rushmore is the current occupier of 1600 pennsylvania. i've decided he should be known this way, instead of calling him mr. president, barack obama, maybe be simpler to refer to him as the fifth face. [laughter] >> i've noticed that whole president obama loves to refer to ronald reagan as if they've got a connection, the styles of these two president aren't as all the same. i think the most stark contrast was the one i noticed in the speech he gave in his reelection lift-off in columbus, ohio. when reagan ran for reelection in 1984, he spoke virtuously
5:05 pm
of the american people and their resilience. >> america is coming back and is more confident than ever about the future. [applause] >> tonight, tonight, we thank the citizens of the united states whose faith and unwillingness to give up on themselves or this country saved us all. >> well, i heard a line in president obama's speech and that pretty much summed it up. >> i believe in you and asking you to keep believing in me. and i'm asking you to keep believing in me. keep believing in me. >> there you have it. but president obama, we just need to believe in him. he'll take care of us. gosh, i never realized how easy it would be to get america on track from the highest ever unemployment rates and worst ever job market for young people and loss of prestige around the
5:06 pm
world and a record busting debt that we've amassed that means my grandchildren, what a great time to throw in a couple of gratuitous photos of chandler and schyller, and why, why because i can. and i never realized that all we have to do is believe in him and it will all be just fine. you know, i think his campaign slogan should be barack, 316. for obama so loved us that who solver believed in him should not be unemployed or afraid, but have ever lasting lootment aen that's why i think we should think of him as the fifth face. [laughte [laughter]. [applause]. >> . >> well, the fatal shooting of teenager trayvon martin made national headlines a couple of months ago and the national media turned it into a story
5:07 pm
of-- george zimmerman claimed he shot him in self-defense. evidence released by the prosecutor's office showed zimmerman suffered two black eyes, a broken nose and cuts to the back of the head could have been caused during a struggle. harvard law professor alan dershowitz say that prosecutors bungled the case. great to have you here, and there was shocking evidence that came forward this week released not only about the medical condition of george zimmerman not included in the prosecutor's affidavit, but also, indication close range gunshot wound it trayvon martin and no other signs of injury other than bloody knuckles, indicating they might have been used to create the broken nose on george zimmerman. what is most shocking about the new evidence and the fact that we haven't heard it before. >> what's most shocking the prosecutor was aware of most of the evidence in general outline and made a deliberate,
5:08 pm
willful, unprofessional and illegal decision to withhold that evidence not from you and me and the media, but from the courts and from the affidavit that she filed in support of an over blown second degree murder prosecution. you mentioned illegal, that's a strong word. >> it is. >> your allegation is that because she knowingly, willingly, deliberately withheld critical evidence that would affect the outcome, not only of public opinion, this is not about what the public thinks, this is about the guilt or innocence of a man accused in a court of law and that takes it to a different level, does it not? >> she may have done worse than that. the information suggests she may have withheld some of this information from the police officer whose affidavit she submitted. in other words, she may have laundered the information in a way to permit that police officer to file an affidavit that doesn't include this material, and then she could say, you know, sitting there like the, i don't see anything, i don't know anything, oh, oh, oh, he didn't know about that.
5:09 pm
but the prosecutor's office was fully aware of much of this information, when they filed that affidavit. and then you mention in your intro that the media talked about profiling. it was the pros who talked about profiling, in the affidavit itself he uses the term that zimmerman was profiling martin. when he was asked about it, whats with a the basis. he didn't have any basis, it was made up. >> that's a subjective point of view to get inside the mind of george zimmerman unless he's blogged or written or spoken on the record comments that indicated he was racist, that he distrusted people of color. there is no indication. i think it's father, great grandfather was african-american father was hispanic and i sometimes get confused even when people use the term white-hispanic which we said in the intro, i'm not sure what that means. the point is that you can't
5:10 pm
allege racism in legal filings unless there's some evidence to indicate that? >> no, and certainly when you're filing an affidavit. it has to be based on the truth, the whole truth and nothing, but the truth. if you deliberate submit a half truth, that's a lie. >> and this affidavit and the submissions by the prosecutor constituted a half truth that's a lie and she ought to be investigated by what she's done. she's done something much worse. she sees her job, essentially, to prevent riots. she said essentially reading between the lines, i'm not interested in justice for zimmerman, her job is to do j inventory for trayvon martin and that's obviously not the prosecutor's jobs, but she's raised expectations, she's indicted or informed for second degree murder. there was never any basis for second degree murder. that raises expectations. no reasonable jury, we'll get to the jury in a minute because it's going to be very
5:11 pm
hard to get a jury that's not afraid for its life if it aquits. expectations will be raised and lowered and if there are, god forbid, riots or demonstrations the finger will point t-prosecutor. >> i almost can't imagine there not being some type of very violent reaction given that there was a pretty violent, i guess, prelude, even before charges were filed. people were absolutely demanding that someone get arrested, that someone get charged, that someone go to jail for this. now, if zimmerman ends up getting acquitted or even perhaps nmore interestingly, the charge is dropped. this could make the rodney king afterward look tame. >> well, you know, you can understand why there'd be reaction because the public wasn't aware of the facts. take, for example, he wasn't
5:12 pm
arrested. he was arrested. he was handcuffed. he was involuntary put in pa police van. taken to police headquarters, i teach criminal, he was arrested. he was released when the prosecution couldn't make out a case. in factment one of the officers recommended to prosecution, though not to murder, but for manslaughter. never occurred to anybody to charge for murder until this politically motivated prosecutors might as well charge for second degree murder, and i'll be a hero years from now, people don't remember that. the justice department has a slowing on the front door. government wins every time justi justice-- and thanks for your candor and

correspondent. >> the obama administration thinks we should have and i think the most objectionable is the morning after pills. why is that moving forward? >> there's much more to xand on the morning after pill. i want to thank you for having this subject today. it's the end of women's national health week. to me there are economic reasons for having contraceptives in insurance. greatest 'cause of poverty for women, pregnancy. sadly enough, when you want to become a mom, more likely to become poor. >> and unintended pregnancies, an alarming rate. if you have evolved on this, because i'm from a southern baptist home, pre marital sex, verboten, forbidden, all of that. when you lie at unintended pregnancies in this country. occurring at alarming rate 5%

of young women reproductive age. when you're 45, 3 of 10 end in abortion, and we don't want that. and we know that contraceptives are medicine. we take them to lower the risks of ovarian cancer or dismen roa, and this is not just an issue of prognosissy, it's about economics and general health of women. and fair enough on the issue of health and poverty. why force organizations particularly catholic hospitals and others who don't believe in it to either have to do it or basically not provide health care. alice that's the objection. >> this is a violation of religious freedoms, to force them, whether it was a religious organization or their employer, to pay for contraceptives for other people. when they're-- it's against their conscious, this is a violation of

religious concerns and there is the health aspect and the medical issue. >> and this is listed as part of preventive care, presidency is not a disease. it's for like heart disease and liver disease. this is not a disease, it's something that should not be covered under obama care, there are plenty of places for any woman who wants to get free contraceptives can get them at planned parenthood. across the country, free contraceptives, available and the notion of this being free. it's not free, what insurance companies are doing now, spreading the costs among the insurance poy es, and everyone is paying for it. to say it's free is incorrect. >> would it be fair, let's stipulate that there are medical reasons and could be included. would there be not room for an accommodation to those entities, religious or otherwise, who felt a moral objection to providing particularly the morning after pills, an aborted far
